Currently there is no High risk Work licence or similar required (mandated) for telescopic handler operators.
Employers (PCBUs) have 'duty of care' to ensure their employees (workers, including sub-contractors) are suitably trained and competent. The best option is to have the workers complete the Telescopic Handler Association of Australia (TSHA) training course known as the 'Gold Card'.
The TSHA course is mapped to the RIIHAN309F National Unit of Competency and those successfully complete the training are issued a photo wallet card valid for 5 years. This is by far the preferred 'proof of competency' required by almost all builders, minesites and large organisations.
The course duration is one day.
Trainees can expect to learn knowledge and skills to safely operate telehandlers.
The course content includes:
DAT Training offers this course on a regular basis, often weekly. We have our 'home venue' at Hexham but can deliver on your site subject to a few T&Cs. Please call or email for more information.
Anyone requiring training or further information can call DAT Training or log onto the TSHA website on www.tsha.com.au
On Thursday 11 and Friday 12 August we will run our first High Risk Work courses at the Somersby venue.
We have shortened the usual 3 day courses to just 2 days as we have small class sizes.
On those 2 days we will offer HRW Forklift course which leads to the issue on Class LF licence.
Places still available.
Please call or email for more information or to enrol.
EOFY is coming….Why not squeeze in some training as an expense before your tax return is due?
Traditionally many businesses squeeze in a few expenditure items just before EOFY.
This is a legitimate way for some enterprises to reduce their tax payable if the items can be claimed as a business expense.
Training for staff members is claimable and the courses we offer would be a great way to upskill your staff and maybe save a little money as well.
As mentioned, traditionally many businesses choose this path so it’s best to book your training early to ensure it can be delivered and paid for before June 30.
Visit our website or give us a call to see if any of our courses would be valuable or necessary for your staff or yourself.

Latest technology lithium batteries and other improvements are creating real options for hirers of access equipment like booms and scissors.
Pick and carry equipment like forklifts and walkie stackers have had battery powered options available for ages.
Now even telescopic handlers are available!
These all-terrain machines are extremely popular on construction and mining sites.
Having an all-electric option may be just what some people have been waiting for.
The manufacturers can rightly claim possible advantages such as:
Training for these electric options may be modified for plant specific knowledge but is essentially similar to standard operator training.
DAT Training offers a range of courses for operators of EWPs, Forklifts and telescopic handlers.
